First on Fox: Virginia State Senator Jane Keygans, who worked as a Navy helicopter pilot, says she is “ready to serve” in Congress again.
Kiggins, who won Republican nominations in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District last week, one of the most competitive House seats in the country, highlighted in the National Republican Congressional Committee’s (NRCC) paid media effort that “as a third-generation member, armed service, honor, duty, service, Served my country as a Navy helicopter pilot, served my family as a mother of four, and served my community as a nurse practitioner and state senator. “
Drawing attention to skyrocketing gas prices and rising inflation, as well as the controversial US exit from Afghanistan last summer, Kiggins argues that “like many Americans, I have seen the devastating effects of the Democrats’ one-sided rule. Enough.”
“The one-party rule in Washington has made it harder for families to meet and it is becoming harder and harder to find the way to the American dream. Prices are too high, students are left behind and families don’t feel safe. In their communities,” Kiggins charges. “There are problems that I want to help solve.”
The House Gop Relation Arm launched an initiative to spotlight unique and diverse candidates
The NRCC is making Kiggins the third candidate to show up in its “Project Spotlight” initiative to highlight top party recruits who call the House GOP re-election arm “the unique story and diversity of the Republican Party in communities across the country”. Kiggins’ video was first shared with Fox News Digital on Monday.
Kiggins will face fellow veteran and Democratic Republican Ellen Luria in November, who served two decades in the Navy and spent most of her time on naval ships as she rose to the rank of commander.
The NRCC highlighted the candidate in the key swing district who overcame drug addiction
The newly reclaimed 2nd District in Southeast Virginia is plowed by Virginia Beach and includes Norfolk, Hampton, Chesapeake, Suffolk, the Isle of Wight and the East Coast of the state. It is considered a top battle state and Luria is one of the NRCC’s top goals as its goal is to regain a majority in the House in mid-November elections.
“Jane Keygans is one of the most talented candidates I’ve ever seen,” NRCC president Tom Emer emphasized in a statement. “Her experience as a Navy helicopter pilot, nurse practitioner and mother has uniquely qualified her to address the myriad crises created by Ellen Luria and the Washington Democrats for Virginia families.“

NRCC launched its “Project Spotlight” series in April, named after Monica de la Cruz, the 15th Congressional District of Texas, a district on the U.S.-Mexico border, GOP. Last month, Lisa Schiller was highlighted in Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District. NRCC officials said their initiative would include one candidate per month until the November elections.
As the GOP lost a majority in the White House and Senate in the 2020 election, House Republicans dashed expectations and took a big hit with the Democrats’ majority in the chamber. The GOP needs a net advantage of just five seats in the 435-member chamber in November to regain the majority it lost in mid-2018.
